The Salvation Army is on the ground assisting with clean up and relief efforts in Sydney. The Community Response Unit Mobile Kitchen has been providing hot soup, sandwiches, and beverages to volunteers, crew and community members. 

The Salvation Army will be distributing donated funds to flood victims whose application for assistance have been reviewed and approved by Cape Breton Regional Municipality by the end of this week. In-person monetary donations can be made to The Salvation Army Sydney Corps located at 55 Inglis Street, Sydney, NS, or via phone at 902-562-5442.

"We are grateful for the generosity we have seen here in the past week," says Corey Vincent, Sydney Corps Officer. "The support coming from communities in Cape Breton and across Canada is giving hope to those who have lost so much."

 

Special thanks to the volunteers and crews working tirelessly to rebuild the community.
